Add/Remove Programs Problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.setup (More info?)

I have the Add/Remove Programs problem. In this case when the item
is clicked on in Control Panel nothing appears to happen. In fact,
mshta.exe is hanging in the background and can be stopped using task
manager. I have tried to perform an in-place upgrade and repair, but, my
CD is SP3 and the installation has been patched to SP4. Is there a way I
can either create an full W2K SP4 CD from the SP3 CD and SP4 patch or
download an SP4 CD image from MS? Is there anything else that can be
done?

    I am not very sure if you can slipstream SP4 on CD with SP3 integrated, but
    still you can refer to this link for integrating and deploying service packs
    and hotfixes in Windows 2000.

    You can indeed download the complete SP4 from the MS support site. It's
    too long ago that I did it, so I can't give you the page ref.
